  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced apple, your favorite kind (about 1 small apple)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo or regular mayo (or more or less depending on how much mayo you like)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 lettuce cups, I used butter lettuce but romaine leaves would work well too or you could omit
  • 4 servings of your favorite crackers
  • 4 small bunches grapes or 4 small handfuls mixed nuts


  1. Add chickpeas to a medium sized bowl and use a potato masher or fork to slightly mash.  Add all remaining chickpea salad ingredients and mix until combined.
  2. Line up 4 meal prep containers.  To each one add a lettuce leaf and then spoon on 1/4 of the chickpea salad mixture.  I like to use silicone muffin liners to separate the crackers and grapes/mixed nuts.
